Open forum on faculty advising issues

What do you see as the important issues faced by faculty advisors? Examples I often hear about include:

  • How to motivate faculty, most of whom are already busy with their classroom and research responsibilities, to take advising seriously and do it well.

  • How to help faculty understand that advising is more than just telling students which classes to take

  • How to train a freshly-minted Ph.D. (or a ‘not-so-freshly’ minted one!) to be a good faculty advisor
